On Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he requested and has accepted the resignation of national security adviser John Bolton.

Bolton offered a different account of his resignation.

Bolton’s resignation follows reports of conflict in the White House between Bolton and other members of the administration over foreign policy, most notably Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. This week, the New York Times reported that Bolton fiercely objected to a planned meeting at Camp David with members of the Taliban for Afghanistan peace talks.

The president said he will name a new national security adviser next week.
